Cleaf | Triennale Design Museum

News »

 

Cleaf is technical partner of the eleventh edition of the Triennale Design Museum, that tells the story of Italian design by using a whole series of stories, which together illustrate its complex nature (Storie. Il design Italiano - Palazzo della Triennale 14 April - 16 September 2018).

126 faced panels nearly 5 metres high in a black Ares texture were used to cover the curved walls of Muzio’s building, which Calvi Brambilla, the architects hired for the exhibition design, describe as “an actual street along which the collection of objects selected by the curators unfolds with a rhythm that underlines the passion of Italian design.

 

 

The Ares texture, reproducing the essence and depth of a wall in concrete or Venetian plaster, creates a tactile and visual effect that reflects the idea of the city, the guiding concept behind Calvi Brambilla’s design project: “the history of Italian design is an interminable array of experimentation, innovation and reconsiderations and only the urban fabric has a similar level of complexity. Visiting the museum will be like penetrating a city which we have heard so much about and to which we may have paid a fleeting visit but which we have never properly explored.

Being selected by the Triennale Design Museum is very gratifying and a sign that the design experimentation we are pursuing with so much care and passion is appreciated.” – remarked Roberto Caspani of Cleaf – “The project-installation Surfaces from the Antipodes which we presented during Milan Design Week aims to highlight the materiality of our surfaces for furnishings and interiors.
